Can't navigate away from https: page after logging out

(OP)
It all started yesterday after upgrading to Firefox 3.6 (or so I think the timing was).

Logged out of GoDaddy web mail and sitting on this page logged out (https://email.secureserver.net/login.php).

I typed in www.tek-tips.com and it said "Authentication Failed. Please try again." as if I were trying to log into the webmail again. but I wasn't  I had done this every day for the last year (check web mail first, then go to to tek-tips.com).

I have to go to google or another page and THEN go to Tek-tips.  Bizarre.  Can't find any matches on the intrawebz.

Tried Coke.com, pepsi.com - same result.  BUT, it will go to google.com    Now really confused.
